1" Lewes planners begin Comprehensive Development Plan workshops Nov. 19 The Lewes Planning Commis- sion will host an initial round of workshops to hear Lewes resident interests and concerns on how to guide growth in Lewes. All municipalities are required to develop a Comprehensive De- velopment Plan that sets forth the city or town's position on such things as community character, expansion of boundaries, general use of land in the community, pro- tection of sensitive areas and criti- cal community development and infrastructure issues " When adopted, the Comprehen- sive Plan has the force of law and serves as the basis for the devel- opment of zoning regulations. While Lewes currently has a Long Range Plan that was ap- proved in 1992 and issues-related plans for such things as trans- portation and the canal front, the development of the Comprehen- sive Plan provides an opportunity to bring all the pieces together and allow the vision of Lewes to take shape. University of Delaware workshop facilitates, Bill Mc- Gowan and Joe Farrell, will lead participants through a series of questions that look at Lewes' core values - these values that provide residents' vision of Lewes - and consider how these values can be accommodated and serve as the basis of a Comprehensive Plan. "Public participation is critical to the value of this plan," accord- ing to cofacilitator Joe Farrell. "Lewes has a very engaged citi- zenry, and the fruits of citizen im- provement are clear in the Lewes Canalfront project. The Compre- hensive Plan provides the city with the tool to develop that vi- sion. We need to hear from resi- dents now, so that their interests, whether it ' is the canalfront, his- toric district, open space or af- fordable housing, are built into the plan." The workshops have been scheduled at varying times and lo- cations to provide everyone with an opportunity to attend a session. The schedule is, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 19, at the Lewes Public Library; 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 21, at Friendship Baptist Church, and 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Nov. 23 at Lewes Presbyterian Church. In cooperation with the Lewes Planning Commission, the Uni- versity of Delaware Sea Grant Marine Advisory Service has de- veloped a community question- naire to better understand commu- nity interests and help validate whether public discussion reflects the broader community views. The mail survey will be distrib- uted to residents during the next month.
